In The Kitchen

Oreo Cookie Mummy Pops Recipe


small bowl
plastic baggie


1 bag White Candy Melts or White Chocolate Chips
1 package Oreos (we prefer double stuffed for this recipe)
1 package Lollipop Sticks
1 package Candy Eyeballs


Melt your candy melts according to package instructions. Take apart cookies.

Dip your lollipop stick in a dab of the melted chocolate and press it into the creamy center of the Oreo. Place the top of the cookie back on and refrigerate until solid.

Take your cookie back out of the fridge and dip the entire cookie on a stick back into the chocolate (reheat if it hardens). Cover the entire cookie.

Place candy eyeballs somewhere in the middle of the cookie.

Add “mummy bandages” by putting the melted chocolate in the plastic bag, snipping off a tiny piece from the corner, and piping it onto the cookie pop. Refrigerate until hardened.
